FAIB launches a New Course – Mental Health and Wellbeing for those working with children

FAIB Launches a New Course – Mental Health and Wellbeing for those working with children.

After reviewing several providers in the market it felt that FAIB’s positioning in this course had to be from an operational perspective.

To support Nurseries and Schools with understanding more about Mental Health, but operationally what and how they could help the children in their care. The work that they can do on prevention and improving wellbeing and what plans they can put in place to support a child when they need it, including ways to gain a successful referral.

The content has an increased focus on common mental illnesses and on the solutions and self-help techniques that aid the prevention of them. As well as placing an importance on promoting mental health and wellbeing in Educational settings for both children and staff.

Like the Adult course, being trained in this course will allow you to train the shorter 3 hr course , a one day and a 2 day course. All courses will be able to be delivered in shorter sessions to accommodate the needs of nurseries and schools and can be delivered over half a term (6 weeks ).  Our aim is to support in creating real change.

The course covers;
Ofsted requirements
Safeguarding and behaviour
Prevention and Wellbeing
Mental Health Action planning i.e. First Aid for Mental Health
Common Mental Health Illnesses
Severe Mental Health Illnesses
The Step Model of Care and referrals
Wellbeing for you in your setting

To those that have already completely the Adult Mental Health and Wellbeing train the trainer course – we are offering a 2 day conversion course at £250+vat. To support Training providers as much as possible through these challenging times, various payment options and plans are available.

For conversion courses from Adult to Child it will be the first 2 days of the course dates advertised.

If you would like to book on to the course the dates are below https://bookwhen.com/faib.

WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY – SATURDAY 10TH OCTOBER 2020

It has never been more important to look after the wellbeing of staff!

There are  huge outside pressures of the current world that we live in,   the need to work remotely or to retain social distancing all whilst working hard to ensure that jobs are safe in these challenging times. We believe that the most successful workplaces in the long-term will be the ones that recognise the importance of embedding mental health and wellbeing into their strategies. Mental Health can no longer be treated as a tick box exercise.

Why should you choose The First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) to become a Mental Health and Wellbeing trainer?

Workplaces are now needed to understand not only what to do in a Mental Health Crisis, but they also need to be aware of preventative measures such as how to encourage wellbeing within their culture.

At FAIB, Mental Health and Wellbeing in the workplace course, has and increased focus on

  • stress and common mental health illnesses
  • the solutions and self-help techniques that aid the prevention of them
  • placing an importance on promoting mental health and wellbeing in the workplace

All of which are needed for individuals and organisations to create real change

The courses that you can train following the Trainer course are:

FAIB Mental Health Awareness 1/2 day – Suitable for anyone that wants to increase their awareness in mental health for themselves or others.

FAIB Mental Health in the Workplace 1 day – Suitable for anyone who has Line Manager responsibility or who wants to increase their awareness of mental health and how to support it in the workplace.

FAIB Mental Health and Wellbeing in the workplace 2 days – Suitable for anyone who has Line Manager responsibility, who is responsible for staff wellbeing or wants to increase their awareness of mental health and wellbeing and how they can influence it in the workplace.
